Windows 11 - upgrade changing view/layout

I have just run a standard Windows upgrade on my Surfpro. Apart from some horrid changes to Outlook display, I am no longer getting all the colour options in Puzzlemix - for example, I am not seeing which square is currently selected. I haven't tried all the different games yet to see what other effects there may be. Any suggestions? I have looked in the general Outlook settings under display, but there is nothing obvious to change there?

Don't worry, I found the update had set a high contrast default layout setting, once this was removed, all seems OK. Phew, b***** Microsoft!

Glad to hear you sorted it out! I got a new Windows 11 Dell laptop recently which also had hyper-bright colours in Windows and made puzzlemix (and everything else) look super strange. I eventually switched the colour profile to something else and it looked normal again.
